2 packets halloum cheese, 250g each, sliced medium thin (i.e., just under half a centimetre)
1/4 lemon, juice only


1. Mix the chopped chilli and olive oil in a small bowl or cup and leave the flavours to deepen while you cook the cheese.

4. Give the chilli oil a stir, spoon it over the cheese then give a spritz of lemon.
